Beijing’s newest Hunan inspired restaurant has opened in its historic hutongs, designed by indoorgroup, a local Chinese interior design firm. Covering less than 65sqm, with a width of just 3 metres, the designers had to completely remodel the old dilapidated restaurant. The double height space is topped off by a large skylight.
Everything about the restaurant, particularly the details, were designed by indoorgroup. Using the theme of fishing, the nautical theme is evident in the typography and graphic treatment of the menus, with a wave motif being used throughout.
The designer says that he does not want to ‘overturn an industry’ but simply bring the food of his hometown to the streets of Beijing.
